He seems pretty content just being there. ...maybe he's just over all of the sacrifice it takes to be near the front. His Monster connection will probably sustain him for a while, but I'd be shocked if he was in the paddock next year. It'd be much better ... more »

un-modified mx suspension will definitely beat you up in a long desert race! I learned that the hard way; my stuff now is pretty dialed...never knew what I was missing until I had Dick's racing re-valve my KYB stuff...

This....I ride a 2017 YZ450F, and the Radius CX is amazing. Never stall, works just as well as the Hinson clutch it replaced, and allows me to focus on riding instead of dreading stalling in tight stuff. I mainly stick with my 2017 because I don't want ... more »

Gorgeous build! From the suspension porn down to the graphics - spot on!

Reply to Evans waterless coolant or Engine Ice? 7/25/2020 3:12 PM

Evans waterless all day long; I switched a few years back, and never boiled over riding offroad since then. All my offroad riding buddies use it as well. Not even close for us...

Reply to Broc Tickle testing at factory Yamaha 7/23/2020 4:50 AM

Pretty sure Broc stated the he and JGR were trying to work out something for the nationals. They were nice enough to keep him on their factory bike in the interim. It'd be cool to see him on the Factory Yamaha...

This is only one data point, but anyone else find it odd how Cooper Webb crushed it on the Star 450 at the USGP and MXdN, and then went totally backwards at Factory Yamaha? Obviously there were injuries mucking things up for him during his Yamaha run, ... more »

What sources? Not calling you out, but genuinely curious.

Reply to Where does Malcolm go? 7/16/2020 2:18 PM

He told Swap he'd ride outdoors if he had a ride. I think he sat out after winning the East Coast 250SX title because his FC ride was SX-only. I know he had some kidney issues as well, so he sat out after that. He's much more fit now, so I think he'd ... more »

So riddle me this: why is the Red Bull MXGP MX2 team so dominant, but the TLD team seems to be struggling so much? Works bikes? Rider selection (obviously Prado is one of those special riders that don't come along too often)? Team management (I'm hesitant ... more »

definitely have to pick your spots...I was thinking the same thing...

Bryan, I must admit I'm struggling to let go of ICE motorcycles (and I'm sure it's still a ways off, but probably inevitable), but dang that looks fun. I've owned and ridden e-bikes (currently riding an analog Trek mtb, but a lot of SoCal buddies ride ... more »

Reply to No Budds Creek this year 6/24/2020 8:01 AM

I would imagine the cost of holding a national makes it virtually impossible to come out okay financially w/o fans...I'd choose Nats 10/10 times before SX, but this is a huge vulnerability that our grassroots side of the sport has. Hopefully we hear ... more »
